If you’ve never any of Rishabh Seen’s sitar covers before, consider yourself thoroughly missing out, because they’re ridiculous. Between Animals as Leaders, Meshuggah, Periphery, and Steven Wilson, Rishabh’s covered a lot of musical ground, with an emphasis on the proggier end of the spectrum. This time around, he did a Gear Gods exclusive rendition of Metallica’s “Hard-Wired to Self Destruct.”
Now that you’ve had a few moments to collect the blown pieces of your mind, you should also give Rishabh’s band a go. Mute the Saint are a sitar-fronted progressive metal band and the world’s first of its kind. Their self-titled EP, released last December, can be purchased right here.
